Patrick Moore, founder of Greenpeace, refuted Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ Green New Deal, laying down some scientific facts via his Twitter account.
Referring to Cortez as a “pompous little twit,” Moore said, “You don’t have a plan to grow food for 8 billion people without fossil fuels, or get food into the cities. If fossil fuels were banned every tree in the world would be cut down for fuel for cooking and heating,” Moore said in a tweet Saturday directed at Ocasio-Cortez. “You would bring about mass death.”
He also referred to Ocasio-Cortez as a “garden-variety hypocrite,” in response to a New York Post story that said the Democrat frequently used gas-guzzling Uber and Lyft rides during her 2018 campaign, instead of taking the subway station near her campaign office.
“You’re just a garden-variety hypocrite like the others. And you have ZERO expertise at any of the things you pretend to know,” Moore said.
Moore further asserted that Cortez’ goals of reducing emissions and reducing greenhouse gases were foolishly naive, “Technically (scientifically) this would mean removing all H20 vapour and all CO2 which would mean the eradication of all life on Earth. Brilliant.”
She really is the gift that keeps on giving. Of course, Cortez doesn’t want to remove ALL of the greenhouse gases from the atmosphere. Just enough to send us back to the 19th Century.
Congratulations, Cortez, you’ve invented Amish Socialism. Maybe we can give it a cool acronym, like AmSoc, get matching overalls and discuss how great egalitarianism is as we all churn butter and beat our clothes against a rock.
Cortez has declared we should drastically reduce the use of electricity and cars, but no worries, she will hire some big-brained millennials from culturally-enriched communities in the Bronx and Guatemala to invent new, cutting-edge technologies while the country is in this perpetual blackout. Of course, we don’t have any choice, because the world will literally end in 12 years if we don’t. And CNN, the New York Times, all of the usual suspects are backing this idea like its perfectly reasonable.
Fine, get rid of polyphase electrical grids, refined petroleum, planes and every other advancement Capitalists have so cruelly cursed the world with in their plot to oppress people of color through technology. We will all plow fields and drink goat milk, since cows will also be banned in this Amish Socialism utopia. But know this, once the lights go out, only the strong will survive.
